2017 Nissan Murano vs 2017 Lexus RX near Framingham, MA

2017 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD in Pearl White with LED Daytime Running Lights

2017 Murano in Cashmere Leather

The Murano Has All of the Luxury You Want!

Choosing the appropriate SUV can be difficult, especially when it comes down to the dollars attached. At Marlboro Nissan, we’re not afraid to stack our 2017 Murano against the 2017 RX 350 and see which vehicle provides a better value for you and your family! We know that we need to prove ourselves, too, so that you know this head-to-head battle is worth your read, so feel free to check out our testimonials. You can also speak with a knowledgeable member of our staff any day of the week about how to make the best decision for you and your crew by dialing us up at 508-573-5392. We’re always happy to help!

The Murano and RX 350 are both competitive SUVs, and they certainly provide a whole ton of amenities for you and your family to make them desirable. The Murano really outshines the RX, though, when it comes to cargo space. The Murano provides a hearty 32.1 cubic ft. of room1 behind the first row to stash everyone’s belongings, and that number expands to a massive 67 cubic ft. of hauling area1 with the second row collapsed. The RX 350 can’t cop to the same capability. It can only provide 18.4 cubic ft. of cargo space2 because of its heavily slanted roofline, which really cuts into the room typically allotted for more trunk area. To make it worse, the second row doesn’t even fold completely flat, so there’s really no option to expand that space. You can take on longer items by folding down one of the seats, but that’s as far as this luxury SUV provides in regards to flexibility!

With the Murano clearly pulling ahead of its competitor, let’s look at the number of other small ways it bests its luxurious foe. While the RX 350 does provide a tad more horsepower than the Murano, you’ll enjoy the frugality you acquire in its stead. The Murano’s 3.5-liter V6 engine achieves a commendable 28 MPG hwy3, while the RX 350 can only claim to achieve 27 MPG hwy4. Other than the fuel gauge on your dashboard display, you’ll also see that the Murano can be equipped with NissanConnectSM with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlayTM5, and that’s an amenity that you just won’t find at all on the Lexus RX. Apple CarPlayTM5 is notable for its impressive ability to integrate your smartphone with your vehicle, helping you keep your hands where they belong: safely wrapped around the steering wheel!

At Marlboro Nissan, we pride ourselves on our ability to pair drivers and vehicles best suited for each other. We also offer competitive financing and leasing deals that make the Murano even more affordable! Has this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Murano vs the 2017 Lexus RX near Framingham, MA, assisted in your decision between these two SUVs? If you still have questions, utilize our online chat function, located at the bottom, right-hand corner of the screen. And, as always, please don’t hesitate to swing by our located at 740 Boston Post Road East in Marlborough, MA to take the Murano for a test drive today!

Just purchased a used RAV4 from this dealership. I've never financed a vehicle before, never dealt with a dealership, so I was nervous and cautious. I will say with certainty, these guys that work here are fantastic. Every question I had, as ignorant as they may be, was answered promptly. Purchased on a Saturday, delivered (registered and all) on the following Friday. Everyone was pleasant to work with. Would recommend!!

I don’t typically leave reviews, but after the extraordinary experience I had while purchasing my new car - I just HAD to leave a great review! Mark Stroller and Dan made buying a vehicle FUN! It wasn’t the typical stressful procedure I’ve been through in the past. They got me a great price, they did not pressure me. They explained everything in terms I could understand. Most importantly they got me into an AMAZING vehicle with low mileage that I just absolutely love. Exactly what I wanted!

Service was good, car was relatively in and out but having to return twice now after only owning the vehicle for 17,000 miles (now 30,000 miles on the odometer) for things going wrong doesn’t fill me confidence that the car was built to last as long as some other vehicles I have owned.

My daughter brought her Rogue to Firestone in Natick. She was told she needed ball joints, replace some transmission pan that was rusted out and other stuff totaling $1,800.00+. I said bring it to the dealership because they'll have OEM parts, they'll update software and take care of any recall info. Marlborough Nissan had the car for the day and said NOTHING was wrong with the vehicle. Thank you for taking care of my daughter. As for Firestone in Natick....what a bunch of thieves!!!

Another great experience with Marlboro Nissan Service. WiFi, TV, Starbucks coffee, and an outdoor patio...everything you need while you wait. The best part is that my service was completed under the estimated time that I was given on check in. The professionalism of the people that work in that department is top notch.

As long as I live in New England I’ll be going to Marlboro Nissan for my cars. The employees are all so incredibly easy to work with and aren’t ever pushy. They make buying or leasing a car super simple and don’t try to oversell anything that you aren’t looking for. They all clearly love what they do and are pleasant, kind, and fun to work with. I’ve recommended Marlboro Nissan to anyone who talks to me about buying or leasing a car. You can’t go wrong with these awesome people!

I made an appointment for 1pm on a Thursday and it took 30 minutes just for them to take my car in. I had a dentist appointment to go to after that but I had to cancel it because they didn’t take me in on time. Other than that they are super friendly as usual.

This was my first car purchase and I went to quite a few dealers, and I am happy I settled on a 2014 Nissan Altima from Marlboro Nissan. The employees were knowledgeable and attentive but not overbearing. I felt comfortable negotiating with them, they understood I had other options but I ended up agreeing that the Altima in question was my best bet. The process of finalizing the sale was speedy and efficient as well. Many thanks to Colin and the rest of the Marlboro Nissan team.
